Webinar: Nutrigenomics in Companion Animal Nutrition
Using Cutting-Edge Science to Understand the Hidden Effects of Nutrition
WHAT: Join Dr. Kristen Brennan, research manager at Alltech, as she examines how nutrigenomics can be applied to companion animal nutrition. Learn how this science can be used to give pet food manufacturers a competitive edge through a better understanding of the impact specific nutrients have on overall pet health. The live webinar will explain:
- What is nutrigenomics?
- How does nutrigenomics help us figure out the “hidden effects” of nutrition in pets?
- How can we use this information to feed our pets better and use it to make nutrition more precise for life stages, breeds or health challenges in pets?
For those unable to attend the live webinar, a recording will be available; however, you’ll still need to register for the event to have access.
